Today in Jen's Library

I listen to audiobooks while I flip houses. I also read real books which I buy incessantly.

The Adoration of Jenna Fox - Mary E. Pearson I absolutely adore this book.

Where do I begin? The slow awakening of a person who is realising that she's a person. The introspection. The observation -- I think it's the observation that grabbed me the most. The development of odd relationships. The insight, and the growth into response.

I know I'm being vague here, but honestly, that's just what I loved about this book. I didn't expect this and was really bowled over. I think I expected more sci-fi, more of a straight-line story with lots of action. Oh, no. This is a slower -- not dull, it's well-paced -- unwrapping of philosophical issues about identity.

I especially liked the way Jenna looked up words and defined them. I love the way her relationship with Lily evolves. I love the way she grows into herself and becomes someone else.

Do yourself a favor and listen to this on audio. Jenna Lamia reads it and she's fabulous.
